Last week we including "Pancho Villa" by Sun Kil Moon from the album "Ghosts of the great highway" and we stick with Moon and that album this week as we go to their long and touching song "Duk Koo Kim", which again takes it's title from an Asian fighter.
The fighter in question is another tragic figure from Asian boxing, with the man in question being Duk Koo Kim, who famously passed away following a Lightweight world title bout with Ray Mancini.
We think every fight fan is aware of the fight, which saw Kim being stopped in round 14 and his death having massive consequences beyond just himself, with the referee and Kim's mother both committing suicide following the bout. The bout was also responsible for the change from 15 to 12 round fights in the years that followed.
The song is one that will appeal, musically, to some, but even if it's not musically to everyone's taste it's nice to think that Kim's death touched an American musician so much that around 20 years later he would record a song regarding Kim.
Some things don't fit in elsewhere on the site so have been put here as a result.
